New to the forum, not new to chickens. Grew up with them. Also took care of roughly 100 buff orpingtons while working on a farm. Set up my coop and began my run this week, it will be 20'×10'. Coop is 5'×6'. The chickens will be partially free ranged. A few hours late afternoon. They're currently in the coop, cool training. Plan to keep them there until Tuesday morning. They are 3 ISA Browns, 5 months old. They went into the coop today, and have laid 2 eggs. Waiting for Barred Rocks to hatch and I'll be adding 3 of them.

I could personally never own a flock that large. NO WAY!! They were free ranged from a large chicken tractor that we pulled around cow fields, once a week. That being said, as you can imagine there were countless losses to predators. My coop isn't much to speak of, but it's sturdy and secure. They'll only use it for laying, and roosting.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
